Event Description

Firefly-Interactive Prototypes
Where: Sala Ejecutiva 1
Price: $95.00 USD
Course Language: English
Professor: Andrew Payne, LIFT architects | Harvard GSD | FireFly
Drag and Drop programing
Using Grasshopper's visual programming interface, Firefly gives you the ability to create interactive programs and devices by manipulating elements graphically rather than by specifying them textually. It attempts to bridge the gap between the digital and physical worlds by simplifying the prototyping process for interactive objects. It combines a specialised set of components with a novel communication protocol (called the Firefly Firmata, or Firmware) which together enable real-time feedback between hardware devices such as the well-known Arduino micro-controller and the Rhino / Grasshopper modelling environment. All this happens instantly - so there's no compiling. Your program runs as you build it, making development and prototyping an extremely rapid process
NOTE: You have to bring your own computer with Rhino 5 installed.
Optional: Arduino/FireFLY electronics kit
Price: $129.00 USD
Each team [ 2 or 3 students ] will be able to use or buy a specialised Arduino/Firefly electronics kit as part of the workshop fee.

Programación de arrastre
Utilizando la interface de programación visual de Grasshopper, Firefly tiene la agilidad de crear programas y dispositivos interactivos, por medio de manipular elementos gráficamente, en lugar de especificarlos textualmente. Intenta crear un puente entre el mundo digital y el físico simplificando el proceso de prototipo para objetos interactivos. Combina una series de componentes especializados con un nuevo protocolo de comunicación (llamado Firefly Firmata o Firmware), en el cuál juntos permiten una retroalimentación en tiempo real entre los dispositivos hardware, como lo es el microcontrolador Arduino, y el ambiente de modelado de Rhino / Grasshopper. Todo sucede instantáneamente, por lo que no hay compilación. El programa se ejecuta como se construye, haciendo los procesos de desarrollo y prototipado extremadamente rápidos.
NOTA: Tienes que llevar tu computador con Rhino 5 ya instalado.
Opcional: Arduino/FireFLY kit electrónico
Precio: $129.00 USD
Cada equipo (2 o 3 estudiantes) podrá utilizar o comprar un kit Arduino/Firefly especializado como parte del curso.
